Joe Sebok's Working Hard at Winery

Posted on Wednesday, January 02, 2013 by "T".
The American poker pro Joe Sebok, 35, has almost $2 million in live tournament earnings (no major title) and was well liked for several years when he was known more as Barry Greenstein's stepson than a poker pro. It has been very quiet from Sebok in the past year or so and the question is if he ever will win a major tournament title - because, according to a recent interview, he spent last year a[...]   Read more » Joe Sebok's Working Hard at Winery

Most people don't know California for it, but it has nice areas with the appropriate climate to vine cultures. Portugal has some distinguished areas in which the climate is perfect for some types of greys, and than the results prove that. Even what we call bad wine, sold at little local shops at the glass, is good wine, now you can imagine the really good one. We are talking about $200/bottle. Some don't get to be exported to to the lack of quantity, others go all to the same place/buyer, exactly due to the same reason. Let's see if he gets good wine too. It takes time to see that!

I like the fact that he wants to do something else than poker, it's really important if you ask me!

As for the job that he opted it's really interesting, if you represent a good brand you can travel all over the world.

G'day mates
I think it is really cool that he like to work in a winery. I recently watched a movie called bottle shock which was about the first contest between the french wine snobs Smile and the Napa valley wines of California in which the winner was the California wine.
It is a really nice movie.

Be cool and luck to us all

That's quite the guy to go perform the physical duties and withstand the push that comes when it's harvest time in the vineyards.
I have a friend that has a small vinyard in Missouri and when it's harvest, processing and making win time for these people they become very serious and dedicated to their work. I mean everything is basically harvested by hand and carried to larger transportin units, but in a careful manner to prevent any damage or spoilage to the fruit.
So Joe probably sweat off some major poundage!
